Arisaig with the sun setting on what was a wild and windy days sail/motor. Left Isle of Ornsay in the morning to a choppy slow going motor. Bailed out about lunch time in Mallaig - horrible place with no where to park up . So headed down the coast to Arisaig where we had to navigate a twisty channel through the rocks to get to this delightful bay where we anchored in time for this sunset, and a beer or two-:-)

Left Kyle of Lochalsh to head back down the sound of Sleat. Winds were blowing 25+ on the nose so we dived into Isle of Ornsay on Skye for a bit of shelter as worst was forecasted. A lovely place with a hotel at its head. Had a wild night wind. Will probably stay an extra day as gale force winds are Forecasted! Then see where we go.

We were heading for Loch Torridon but the outlook for the following two days was wild so did an about turn and headed south for here. D enjoyed a few more hours of 20 knots of wind to play in! Poss heading for Isle of Oronsay 2morrow.
Lazy day in the sun. Walked thru Plockton,had pub lunch and spent afternoon reading papers while D busied himself cleaning boat etc. Piper sta2ted the Plockton sailing regatta. D caught two little fish and several little crabs in his creel which were released straight away. Had to have tea at the pub shame!
